A quaint mall gave birth to this homemade gem. With sauces that bespeak rich personal touches, I would return daily. The major item served is shrimp in numerous ways. I will go back. A simple beachy feel with a family feeling. Loved it

Savage Shrimp is a great place to enjoy some delicious shrimp. This little restaurant has about 4 tables inside the restaurant and another 4 or 5 tables outside. The Aloha Shrimp dish was awesome. Wish I could take some home. Service was great and the staff was very friendly. She came out to talk between checking on orders and cleaning... More

I love shrimp and I love spicey, so I got the spicy shrimp and loved it. Cooked with the shell on it does get a little messy but tasted great! On the other hand my wife had the coconut shrimp and she was not happy. I tried it, because she isn't a lover of seafood, and I agreed. The shrimp... More

This was my favorite meal on the island. The Aloha shrimp was delicious and the fries were very good too. Wish I would have had a chance to try another dish.

I grabbed the coconut shrimp. It was tasty, but felt the coconut matted the shrimp so much that it took a little away from the jumbo critters. The dipping sauce was tasty. Kinda wondered if it were an apricot/pineapple combo. Didn't ask though. The purveyor was super friendly so next time I'll try the spicy shrimp.

We ate her because of reviews we had read previously. We felt that the shrimp were small for the amount of money charged. We won't be back.

And we were so glad we did! Delicious fish taco (with Ono--who's doing that??) and a Firecracker Shrimp that had us eating WAY more than we needed. Another peeled shrimp dish in sauce that I would pay big money for the recipe. We measured the baby girl against the door and drew a line and dated it--we'll be back at... More

We had the coconut shrimp and the batterered shrimp. Both were very good with a unique tartar sauce. No frills atmosphere and a very reasonable price.

We had a shrimp cocktail and coconut shrimp a la carte. They put pieces of shrimp in the cocktail sauce. Not good, because we are paying for that, so to get our shrimp, we have to fish it out of the sauce. Then, it's swimming in the sauce. The coconut shrimp. If it were up to me, I would toast... More
